As this time all of us grown as technical humans and in our life we are using smartphones, cars, etc. In these we use various applications or software for navigation that uses GPS system . GPS stands for (Global Positioning System).IRNSS System is an alternative to the GPS system. Before learning more information about IRNSS let's know the full form of IRNSS.
Full-Form Of IRNSS Satelite:- Indian Regional National Satellite Service
I hope almost everyone already knows about IRNSS. And we can also get some ideas about its detail.
What Is IRNSS Satellite:-IRNSS satellite is completely India's self-developed satellite or navigation system which equivalent to the GPS satellite navigation system, which is developed by the USA ( United State Of America ). To understand comfortably we can also consider a live example as we use navigation services on our car, smartphones, location tracker, etc. for tracking about our location and getting an idea about the path of our destination for which we are moving. These system work for providing information about our location works on the GPS navigation system, this system developed by USA . Similar to GPS ( navigation system of America ) there are more navigation systems developed by different countries which are as follows:-
GLONASS: Developed by Russia
BEIDOU: Developed by China
GALILEO: Developed by the European Union (EU)
India was known as a country that did not have its own navigation system and Indians were dependent on navigation on the navigation system developed by other countries. Now we are independent of the use of a navigation system developed by other countries and we are self-dependent. Because Indian scientists have developed their own navigation system that pronounced as an IRNSS satellite. We can also consider it as India's own GPS.

Proudly Launching Of IRNSS Satellite:We are feeling proud to discuss that our country is also included in the theist of those countries that have their own satellite-like China and USA.nd the proudly moment of launch of the seventh satellite of IRNSS held oon28 April 2016. Before these six satellites already launched by Indian scientists. This project IRNSS satellite was under the progress from July 2013. So now we are not dependent on the GPS navigation system. Now a question may generate in your mind that why we are discussing once on GPS. So the answer is, in 1999 during the Kargil war known as INDO - PAK war, India asks for help with GPS from the Uthe SA then the USA refused India for providing GPS system, because of this Indian army faced many problems in war. So we are making a discussion about it, but now we need not any help from the navigation system of other countries.

Cost And Time For Development Of IRNSS:-IRNSS Navigation system developed and successfully launched only under the duration of fewer than three years. The cost for the development of the IRNSS satellite navigation system is 1,420 Crore INR that comparatively less and this very less cost used because all the apparatus that used for the development of IRNSS Satellite used from India. If a similar satellite developed in another country then the cost might be high.
Service Provide By IRNSS:-The services offered by IRNSS Satellite will not only provide in INDIA but also on our neighboring countries like NEPAL, BHUTAN, NEPAL BHUTAN, etc.
As we described above a total of seven satellites launched for the development of IRNSS.So we can get an idea about the accuracy of the location provided by IRNSS when the seven satellites will focus on one navigation system and we will enjoy the accurate location tracking of IRNSS.
IRNSS Satellite Under Testing Phase:-Soon the testing phase of service provides by IRNSS will start. Under the test phase, the scientists who developed the IRNSS will notice the working of the navigation system, are all satellites working properly or not? Error found on properly working of IRNSS. The whole errors that will notice by scientists will be fixed. If all satellite will work properly then the scientists will start the manufacturing of receivers.
After completion of the development of the IRNSS satellite, we can use the navigation system in our cars, mobile, etc. Usage of IRNSS will be of less in cost in comparison to using a GPS navigation system, the licensing fee of GPS is very high.
Advantages Of IRNSS Satellite:-There are various advantages if using IRNSS navigation system instead of other:-
● The location tracked by IRNSS will be accurate. The accuracy of the location tracked by it will be similar to GPS.
● Services will provide by IRNSS not only in India but also on another neighboring country of India
● Now we are independent of the navigation system of other countries at Wartime, Disaster time, earthquake, Flood, etc.
● IRNSS navigation system will be of less cost in comparison of the GPS navigation system.
